Adobe released a new update for Flash Player in the final days of 2015. The update supposed to fix some security flaws in the software, but it actually brought a lot of problems to users who installed it. And these issues will be resolved now, as Microsoft and Adobe collaborated on the new patch, that fixes the issues brought by the latest update for Flash Player.

Adobe and Microsoft both released new updates on December 29th 2015. Adobe released a security update for Adobe Flash Player, and since this software is integrated into Windows 10’s browsers, Internet Explorer 11 and Microsoft Edge, Microsoft also came up with the update, numbered KB3132372.

Adobe Flash Player Security Update Caused Problems with Windows 10 Apps

The update mainly caused problems with Windows 10 apps, as some users reported that their apps no longer work, after they installed the update. Microsoft Community forums were soon flooded with complaints, but no one actually had a proper solution this problem. The only possible solution was to remove the update completely. And since Windows 10 would probably attempt to download the update again, the only way to get rid of the update for good was to delete it, and hide it. But since the new patch is here, you don’t have to worry about that anymore.

Some of the impacted apps are HP printer software, IncrediMail, some online banking apps, but the list could be much longer.

“Same problem. Removed the update yesterday and HP solution center worked ok. Overnight, Windows 10 reinstalled the update and HP solution center failed. Removed update again and HP Solution Center worked again. This needs to be fixed,” one user wrote on Community forums.

Luckily, Microsoft didn’t remain silent about this issue, as it started to work on the patch, which finally arrived today. The patch is delivered through Windows Update, so if it’s not already downloaded, you should go and check for it.
